About the Author

Rachael Lee Harris is a psychotherapist in private practice specialising in high-functioning autism and Asperger's based in Brisbane, Australia.


I highly recommend this book to all health practitioners working with clients with ASC. The method is powerful and revolutionary. With great skill, insight and love Rachael has given us a map for how to assist our clients to understand and accept themselves at the deepest levels, seeking not to change or to cure but to heal. If you are on the spectrum, ask your psychologist or counsellor to use this book. -- Dr Michelle Garnett MPsych(Clin) PhD(Psych) MAPS MCCP Clinical Psychologist/Director of Minds & Hearts: A Unique Clinic For Autism Spectrum Conditions
Rachael's refreshing new therapy describes a journey of self-acceptance from within, often a unique experience for autistic individuals who are constantly dealing with non-acceptance in a neuro-typical world. Whilst highlighting and utilising the positives of autism (of which there are many!) Harris channels these strengths in 12 outlined sessions to aid clients in a journey of change from a very internal perspective. Not fixing, but healing. -- Rachel Nelmes, Counsellor MBACP BA (Hons)
Rachael Harris has developed an innovative therapy model based in meditation and contemplation. Focussed on the strengths in autism and the therapeutic relationship, the book presents a new model of supporting autistic clients to achieve social, emotional and spiritual growth. I strongly recommend this book to therapists and clinicians working with autistic people. -- eanette Purkis, autistic advocate, speaker and co-author of The Guide to Good Mental Health on the Autism Spectrum
